MMA Quick Hits has a notion we think the fans along with the UFC alike will be very happy with. Anderson Silva vs. Randy Couture at a non-title bout! Anderson has had two successful efforts going up to light heavyweight; ruining both Forrest Griffin and James Irvin. A lot of hard work and training is required to become greatest UFC fighters of all time.
Randy Couture just conquered Mark Coleman and abandoned the bout as though he was not even in a struggle. A matchup between The Spider and The Natural are very persuasive for lovers. The only way it seems anyone is every likely to have the ability to conquer Silva would be to take him into the floor and restrain him such as Travis Lutter managed to perform for a brief time period within their 2007 competition.
Who better to grapple with very possibly the best pound-for-pound fighter on earth than Randy Couture.Other Possible matchups for Silva comprise Chael Sonnen, Demian Maia, Jon Jones, Jake Shields, and Dan Henderson.
Regrettably the chances of one or more one of these flames coming to fruition are slim and none. Sonnen and Maia both suffered lacerations within their bouts last weekend. Jon Jones, though likely not prepared for a title shot anyhow, is already reserved for a March matchup from Brandon Vera and is arriving from a controversial disqualification loss to Matt Hamill.
Grasping at straws even farther, the UFC could go outside the company and try to work out a deal with Strikeforce to deliver in Jake Shields or even Dan Henderson to get a bout with Silva. The UFC functions alone, so the odds of forming a short-term partnership with any company is not really likely to occur.
